Been rainy and cold here this week so we had a little "tropical" party one night and made margaritas with this recipe.

My favorite margarita - both at Applebee's and now at home! I buy the bottle of simple syrup at the grocery store so I don't have to make it myself each time but if you can't buy it it's super simple to make just mix equal parts water and sugar in a saucepan and let simmer until it gets a little syrupy. Don't let it crystalize.

I just made this and am drinking it now. It is so good and I think it tastes just like the one from Applebee's. I made sweet and sour mix and simple syrup from scratch, mixed it with Cointreau, Grand Marnier and 1800 Resposido Agave Tequila. I didn't have any extra limes from the sweet and sour mix so I used Rose's brand sweetened lime juice. I measured the amounts perfectly, added 3 olives and a tsp of olive juice. PERFECT!

Can anyone tell me what "Simple Syrup" is?
Simple Syrup is one part sugar and one part water, boiled until "syrupy". I believe you can also buy pre-made simple syrup (some grocery stores and/or liquor stores may carry it)
